Anduin Inc. is committed to sustainability, through both its paperless billing platform and company culture of remote work. Anduin’s Intelligence-Based BillingTM platform was designed to eliminate paper invoicing and streamline online payments, which ultimately creates a sustainable accounts receivable and client payments process. In a recently published testimonial, one customer was able to reduce its use of paper drastically with Anduin, citing that online payments increased by 3x versus the previous year. By encouraging clients to pay via the online payments portal instead of requesting payments by mail-in check, the Anduin platform was able to help this customer cut down on client paper consumption. In addition to paperless payments, Anduin’s Intelligence-Based BillingTM Collections platform offers automated email sequences to request online payment from clients instead of sending multiple paper letter reminders--resulting in 42% of late invoices paid after receiving just 1 email payment reminder and completely eliminating paper collections notices. Another defining component of Anduin’s sustainability culture is how leadership embraces remote work. Even though Anduin calls North Carolina home, with its headquarter office in Charlotte, employees are based all over the world, ranging from Austin and San Francisco, to Israel and Brazil. This emphasis on a remote culture drastically reduces the carbon footprint many companies accumulate from requiring employees to commute. Anduin is dedicated to finding new ways to build sustainability into our culture.
Being carbon neutral means your carbon emissions are balanced by carbon negative projects to eliminate your impact on the environment. Research shows that sustainable businesses have an advantage over others. By becoming a carbon neutral business, you can help fight climate change, increase your company value, improve employee recruiting and retention, build brand loyalty, attract more customers and improve the overall community. Investing in carbon negative projects offers a effective solution to take action against emissions from essential business operations that can't be eliminated.
Knowing where you are is the best place to start. Green Places uses methodology developed and supported by top climate institutions like UC Berkeley to calculate a business’ carbon footprint, identifying the total emissions your business is responsible for producing, and using (directly and indirectly). Understanding your emissions allows companies to be smart about what next steps they take on their climate journey!
A recurring commitment to sustainability provides your customers, employees, and prospective employees with proof that your company is working towards a better planet for all. This commitment can include quantifiable goals set by your company and transparency on emissions and business practices.
The Kootznoowoo Project protects 20,159 acres of forest located on the Dolomi and Dora Bay stretches of Prince of Wales Island in Alaska. 8,000 acres of this project are classified as an old-growth forest - forests with large, old (alive and dead) trees that are virtually undisturbed by human impact. These forests serve as an ecological staple to local animals and nearby communities. This project is unique because it is owned by the native Haida and Tlingit people, who have inhabited this land for over 1,000 years, and managed alongside the United States Forest Service. This joint protection responsibility ensures that indigenous territories are protected and natives voices are heard. This land is home to twelve fish bearing streams and is saturated with various types of berry bushes that are historically significant in the Dolomi and Dora Bay.
Centered in the Charanka Village in the state of Gujarat, this solar grid project is the first of its kind for India. The solar plant produces 25 megawatts (MW) of electricity and is connected to the Indian electricity grid - meaning the country is diversifying its energy sources and creating a more resilient grid. Through the use of power purchase agreements, nearby residents and workplaces can choose to have their energy sourced from this sustainable energy solution.
This project, which is overseen by The Nature Conservancy, is centered around the conservation and protection of Burnt Mountain Natural Area. Burnt Mountain Natural Area is a 5,408-acre forest plot that will remain “forever wild.” “Forever wild” is the highest available legal protection for land in the United States, meaning that the forest must be protected in its natural condition in perpetuity.
Anduin adamantly cares about its employees, from celebrating accomplishments and encouraging personal growth, to prioritizing employee health and wellness. Each employee receives an anniversary cash travel bonus, unlimited PTO, 401K matching, world-class health benefits, and weekly Lunch and Learn sessions to increase employee awareness and encourage curiosity. Anduin also encourages employees to work from anywhere, which reduces carbon emissions generated by daily commutes.
